Updated SharePoint Query Correlation ID Central Admin Page to 2013

Thanks to Ghislain Lerda, the SharePoint Query Correlation ID Central Admin Page has been migrated to 2013. There’s also a new functionality available on the results page which allows you to export the results to a txt file.

The source of the project on CodePlex has been restructured to 2 branches: one for SharePoint 2010 and one for SharePoint 2013. You’ll find future changes for both projects on the same CodePlex site.

You can get the latest at the releases page on CodePlex:

The deployment and configuration of the solution is still the same. Simply install the .wsp on your farm and check the Monitoring category page in central admin. You’ll find a link to the search page there.

Querying Correlation IDs in the Central Admin

I wrote another small solution, but this time it simplifies searching for correlation IDs. The idea is that by using SharePoint’s built-in PowerShell cmdlets, the whole farm can be queried for a correlation id. Feel free to try out a bèta release. Ideas and suggestions are always welcome.

Simplifying adding farm solutions

I wrote a small solution which simplifies the process of managing farm solutions. SharePoint 2010 already has a management page which can be used to deploy, retract and remove farm solutions. The following solution will add a new category under system settings: “Solutions”, so that farm solutions can be added.
